This kind of news is really too boring to be scary. Here come the government accountants with a lot of charts and projections showing what might happen in 2024 if we are dumb enough to stay a dumb as we are today. Oh boy. Hit the lights.

The alternative to sleep or terror, is a comforting reinforcement of prejudice. The accountants show us: The federal deficit is good, the federal deficit is very bad, health care is too expensive, health care is a bargain, corporate taxes are driving business away, corporations are ripping us off, Social Security and Medicare are way better off than people say, Social Security and Medicare will bleed us dry.
